. these are core values that voters send politicians to washington, they want these things protected. no republican that's walking the halls of the house or senate was sent there to cave. theyere elected to advocate for fiscal austerity, balancing the budget, making the case why our debt and deficit are simply immoral and unsustainable. and that's why we admire, for example, people like our founders around our framers. that's why we hold them in such high regard. we conservatives, we love our country with passionate commitment, and like reagan and thatcher before us, we love our country too much to allow her to follow the path toward decline, social disintegration, and of course bankruptcy, which would lead to irrelevance. even when the public makes bad choices, as they did, for example, in the 1970s, when they elected jimmy carter, or as the british did in the 1930s when neville chamberlain served as prime minister. we'll continue to make our case with all the strength, passion, intelligence we can muster as conservatives. great leaders, they're always asked to do a difficult job, and they don't c

example. "the washington post" said i your humble correspondent served up a bigoted commentary. quote a couple hours before president obama was declared the victor bill o'reilly offered up his explanation why it was about to use because it's a containing country not a traditional america how many. in case many might be confused about the meaning of traditional he elaborated the white establishment is now the minority. in other words, the problem was too many voters of color. how vile. how vile. in other words, you pinheads have no right to lie about me by putting fabricated words in my mouth. that's not what i said. you disgrace the journalism industry. you seek to demonize anyone who disagrees with your far left view. am i being clear enough? the whited establishment no longer dominates the political field in america. that is crystal clear. i don't lament that. i'm not pining for a return to calvin coolidge i just reported it but for crazed idealogues that's inconsequential. the post summed up their dishonest commentary saying quote: it's encouraging that many republicans are repudi
the brunt of this battle and they should not defend taxpayers but the spending interests in washington, strikes me as odd. the effort by some to get entitlement reform, the democrats have said heck no and harry reid has said it ain't happening, and they ought to look at that, rather than trying to raise taxes to pay for obama's bigger government. >>neil: do you hear it is spreading? we have chatted about this before. you were open when we chatted in washington, to talk about the cliff cliff, to not equateing bringing in causes or tax loopholes and the like and closing them off, your point was as long as it leads eventually to revamping of the tax code, but this goes beyond that, they have no quid pro quo and they are offering this, you argue, what? >>guest: well, there are two ways you can damage the economy. one is to increase marginal tax rates, everyone knows the small business groups, it would kill 700,000 jobs off the bat, probably worse. the other thing is to eliminate $1 trillion, not talking about a few deductions, but talking about $1 trillion worth of deductions and credits w
on the philosophy i just put forth? joining us now from washington mary katharine ham and juan williams both fox news analysts. on paper where would you rather live, juan. >> on paper i would have to agree with you. it sounds like texas is the place. again, that spirit of freedom. i must say when you said that thing about people not wearing helmets on motorcycles it, reminded me of the whole healthcare debate. i don't want to have to pay when that person goes smoosh on the street. >> bill: that's a legitimate point that people who are irresponsible and hurt themselves oftentimes then wind up in a long-term care facility and the taxpayer has to pick it up. however, you have got to decide, juan and i want you to decide right now. which is worse? the government imposing a lifestyle upon you or basically, look, you are 21 years old and up, by the way under 21 in texas have to wear the helmet. 21 years old and up, you know, can you do what you want to do which is the greater good? for you? >> well, for me, again, i understand what you are saying about this notion of personal freedom. especially when
to be realistically kept. any deal made today in washington is amended next week and the week after or not kept. i mean, it's like you make your deal right now and you hope that even in last -- it lasts through the year. am i right? >> well, the only way to guarantee deals you pass it into law. then it's a lot harder to change them. and my only point is, you know, if we had a game, and every time the term fiscal cliff came up people had to donate a dollar to something, you'd be amazed in the course of a week or two how often this has been repeated like a mantra. i compared to a great essay by tom wolf in which people chanted and made noise in order to get their way. i think we ought to recognize this entire fiscal cliff is an artificial invention of washington, created by people in the congress and the presidency, and it can be broken down by them into a series of steps that can be taken without having to be rushed into one gigantic last-minute, little understood, with no hearings, one vote up or down, i think it's a terrible way to govern the united states. >> greta: well, the sequestration deadl

in washington. >> so the jury is still out. and i'm saying this, this is a point i want to raise with you, adam lashinsky, the knee jerk response, fema is doing a great job, how do you know? how do you know? i just find it offensive when officials who are supposed to be providing help so sure early on that they are. and that is, as these others were pointing out, you could go do aerial shots over staten island at some points looks like mogadishu. and the fact of the matter is, quite rightly we're all over administration officials when it looked like the response to katrina was delayed. and i don't believe we applied the same litmus test this time around, but it is what it is. they have a test the responsiveness of agencies and not reward them with more money, before we know how successful. at this point i would say not suck'sful at all. >> hold on, i almost completely agree with you, neil. where i will give the elected officials the benefit of the doubt, they want to try to be hopeful, right? they want to try to give people something good about, thank you for the good stuff you are doing. >> yo
worries me. since when have we ever seen any spending cuts coming from washington d.c.? charles, spending is going to go up 10 trillion dollars over the next decade and they're telling us they're going to cut a few trillion off of that, so, spending is going to go higher and taxes, my big worry is once they break the top and raise taxes, we're talking marginal rates here, it's not going to stop. that's the worry and i've got to tell you, for me, the biggest irritant of all of this, they waited until the last minute on the debt ceiling and then sold it as the end of the world is coming if we don't get this done now. >> right. >> and waited until the last minute and scaring the living cran out of everybody. >> dagen, let's talk about that because a great article in the journal, businesses are cutting back no doubt about it, but consumers are cutting back and it's an indictment on everyone in washington. >> one of the reasons if we go over the fiscal cliff and it will hit 90% americans. and lowest income, 30,000 a year a family a tax bill north of $1,000 a year and it hits everybody, to that

riley and washington columnist kim strassel. start with you, when you get a defeat like this, there's no one thing necessarily that explains it. but why don't you pick out your most important? >> look, i think there were two things key to the obama victory, one was that very ol on, they ran this very high dollar attack campaign against mitt romney, a bit of a character assassination throughout the summer and mitt romney didn't respond to it and he didn't recover from it. when you combine that with the president's brutally efficient, we now know turnout operation in core states like ohio, virginia and florida, popular vote pretty close in the end. in the end he got out the partisans in much the same numbers in 2008 and that's what won it for him. >> paul: so, kim, you're saying that's about 100 million dollars or more that the obama campaign poured on mitt romney on bain capital on his tax returns on the fact that he's a pluto kratt, and making him to be gordon gecko without the social-- and romney, would you agree they made a fatal mistake in not countering the attack ads? >> i thin
himself and they may call him to the stand. catherine is live this afternoon in washington, dc. there are few specific rules about notifying congress on an investigation like this. >>reporter: title 50 governs national security and defense with section 413 and 413 (a) dealing with notification issues and reads "to keep congressional intelligence committee full law and currently informed of all intelligence activists which are the responsibility of or engaged in by or carried out for or on behalf of any department agency or entitity of the united states government." sources tell fox that the second and final interview with birthday well was the friday before the election and this could be characterized as a personal matter a former justice department official under the bush administration said given the stakes, the c.i.a. director could be blackmailed notified was required. >> what makes the situation particularly significant is that you have someone who obviously was in one of the highest national security positions in the federal government, who conducted himself in ways to su

in washington start bringing the poles home with them? or was she actually dancing for the gators? who were stoned? and if so, how did they give her dollar bills? >>neil: take the 98 percent deal and deal with tax rate hikes on the rich later? that is a republican congressman. comingcoming to you from sunny california, the tax capital of the world, taxes could now go even higher for those earning more than $250,000 a year, or maybe a lot higher because a republican congressman seas we should freeze tax rates for the majority of the americans in time for christmas and deal with the top 2 percent who likely see their rates raised later. that triggers this reaction from house of representatives speaker boehner. >> i told tom i disagreed. you are not going to grow the economy if you raise tax rates on the top two rates. it will hurt small business. it will hurt our economy. that is why this is not the right approach. >> now the guy at the center of the tax storm, oklahoma republican congressman, congressman, he singled you out for calling you out. how do you feel about that? >> i like the speak
liberal groups, from labor unions to moveon.org. with one attendee telling the "washington post" they expect the taxes to go up on the wealthy and to protect medicare and medicaid benefits. they feel confident they don't have to compromise. pressed today on whether the spending cuts are kicked down the road, white house spokesman jay carney was noncommittal. >> you are not having any spending cuts now. you want to do spending cuts next year; is that a fact? >> no. it's not a fact. these are all parts of aspects of the conversations that are ongoing. >> some republicans are pushing boehner an other leaders to accept an extension of the middle class cuts to avoid the white house blaming them for crash over taxes on the rich. >> everybody is waiting for schedule to go up. unless we fix that paradoxically. president obama becomes defender of the bush tax cuts for 98% of the people. he is no such thing. >> the president is seething on the comments to say -- seizing on the comments to say he is optimistic about a deal. >> we could get it done tomorrow. >> budget expert erskine bowles

life to the talks, with vice president biden shopping at new costco in washington, picking up a big screen tv and apple pie and insisting he is optimistic of a deal. >> i am. i am. all the folks in the store, man. going to make a difference. >> carney shot down a politico report that a phone call last night between boehner and the president was curt, noting it was 28 minutes long and productive. signaling the president is flexible on taxes not being specific on the new rates. >> i will say there can be no deal without rates on top earners going up. >> that means that the rates do not necessarily have to go up to 39.6. it could be 37 or 38. meaning they might goose that to try to jump-start the deal with republicans. bloomberg reports that the treasury secretary geithner has been saying look, the sky will fall if we fall off the cliff. he has the power to freeze paycheck withholding levels regardless of how rates change. they can staunch the bleeding from falling off the fiscal cliff if that happens. >> bret: ed, the former presidential candidate mitt romney was at the white house to
